The family were Quakers and members of Short Creek mm located in Short Creek Township.

July 1863 George Served in the Civil WarS17, S18, S19, S20, S21, S22, S23, S24, Newspaper Article,

George was 18 when he was a Minute Man member of Co. I, 109th Indiana Regiment from the 9th to the 17th of July 1863 when John Hunt Morgan raided into southern Indiana during the Civil War. Confederate General John Hunt Morgan crossed the Ohio River in two captured steamboats near the small town of Mauckport, Indiana on 8 July 1863. The Battle of Corydon was the next day and the citizens were far outmatched by the 2,100 Rebels and they were forced to surrender. Along with the approximately 15 causalities for the locals, Morgan also Ransomed the town out of money and supplies before leaving. This was the only pitched battle in Indiana during the Civil War and the last battle to have been fought in Indiana. [4]

Indiana Governor Oliver P. Morton called for Citizen Volunteers, and several regiments were organized, including the 109th Infantry which was organized on 10 July 1863. The unit consisted of 10 companies of "Minute Men" with two of the companies comprising men from Hamilton County. According to records, George was mustered into the 109th Infantry, Co. I, on 9 July at Boxley. On 13 July the 109th left Indianapolis heading to Hamilton County, Ohio and when they arrived the Rebels had already fled the state so they returned to Indianapolis and the 109th was disbanded on 17 July. The Civil War continued until 9 Apr 1865 with the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox. Five days later President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated at Ford's Theater by John Wilkes Booth.

Regimental History:
One Hundred and Ninth Infantry
INDIANA

Minute Men. -- Word being received at Indianapolis on the
evening of July 8, 1863, that a force of 6,000 cavalry under
Morgan had crossed the Ohio River near Mauckport and was
moving on Corydon, a call was issued for citizens to organize
for defense.

Within 48 hours 65,000 men had tendered their services. From
this number regiments 102 to 114 inclusive, and one battalion
were organized, the battalion being assigned to the 107th.

One Hundred and Ninth Infantry. -- Col., John R. Mahan;
Lieut.Col., James L. Angell; Maj., McHenry Brooks.

This regiment was organized July 10, 1863, with ten companies
of minute men. Two of these were volunteers from Coles
county, IL, who offered their services and were accepted by
the government. Two were from Laporte County, Ind., two from
Hamilton, two from Miami, one from Randolph, and one other,
making an aggregate of 709 men rank and file.

The regiment left Indianapolis for Hamilton, Ohio, on the
13th, going thence to Cincinnati. The enemy having passed out
of the state, the regiment returned to Indianapolis and was
mustered out July 17, 1863.

REPORT OF COL. JOHN R. MAHAN,
109TH REGIMENT MINUTE MEN.

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, 1
July 18th, 1863. /

Adjutant General State of Indiana:

SIR: I have the honor to submit to you the following report of
the part taken by the 109th Regiment of Minute Men that I had the
pleasure of commanding during Morgan s late raid through Indiana
and Ohio :

In pursuance of an order emanating from Governor Morton, Com-
mander-in-Chief of the Indiana Militia, at 5 o clock P. M. on the
evening of the 13th we marched from the State House yard to the
depot and boarded the train for Ohio.

In the formation of the brigade commanded by Brig. Gen. Car-
rington my regiment was entitled to the right. At 6 o clock P. M.

Page 73 - MORGAN RAID.

I notified the Superintendent of the road that my regiment was
ready to move out, and on account of an unusual delay we were
detained until 10 o clock, at which time, in pursuance of Governor
Morton s order, I assumed command of the brigade, and ordered the
Superintendent of the road to move the whole brigade out without
delay. He pledged me to move us out in ten minutes. At 10J
o ? clock I was relieved of the command by Brig. Gen. Hascall. At
12 o clock at night the brigade moved out, and arrived at Hamilton,
Ohio, at 10 o clock on the morning of the 14th, at which place I
received a dispatch from Governor Morton, stating that my entire
command would be mounted^ at Hamilton, with orders to move as
rapidly as possible, which dispatch I handed to Gen. Hascall in per
son. At 2J o clock P. M. I left Hamilton, under Gen. Hascall s
order, and arrived at Cincinnati at 5 o clock P. M.

On arriving at Cincinnati I received an order from Gen. Hascall
in person, to remain on board the hog cars until he could have an
interview with Maj. Gen. Burnside, which order I obeyed, with no
small degree of suffering to my men from tne intense heat and con
finement and strong scented cars. At 8 o clock P. M. I moved off
the train and marched to the Sixth street Market House and camped
for the night. At 9 o clock I repaired to the quarters of General
Burnside, and received an order from him for warm supper and
breakfast for my entire regiment. At 1 o clock P. M., the 15th, the
heat being very intense in the position we were occupying, I again
visited General Burnside s head-quarters and received an order to
remove a cavalry force that was occupying Eighth street Park and
occupy the same with my regiment, which order I obeyed immedi
ately, and found the quarters to be very palatable to my men, for
which they gave three hearty cheers for General Burnside. We
remained in that position until after supper. There being a prospect
for rain. I received permission from General Burnside to occupy the
Court House and two large halls for the night.

At 5 o clock on the morning of the 16th we marched back to
Eighth street Park for breakfast, and at 7 o clock A. M. we marched
to the I. and C. railroad and shipped for Indianapolis, by order of
Brig. Gen. Hascall, at which place we arrived on the morning of the
17th, after a tedious ride of twenty-two hours. At 6 o clock we
took breakfast at the Soldiers Home, and at 9 o clock A. M. we
were mustered out of the service.

In conclusion let me state that I cannot speak in too high
terms of the officers and men of my command it being composed

Page 74 - MORGAN RAID.

Of Indiana and Illinois troops. The officers and men from Indiana
did their duty in every respect, and I was particularly pleased with
the gentlemanly appearance and soldier like conduct of that part of
my command from Illinois, The discipline of all the companies was
so perfect that we had no straggling from the regiment, and what is
very remarkable we had not one single case of intoxication while the
regiment was in the service.
I am, General,

Very respectfully,

Your obedient service,

J. R. MAHAN,
Col. Comd g 109^ Reg t Indiana Militia.

Extract:
SUICIDE OF A. FOULKE AT ARCADIA, WED
Garage ad Filling Station Man Blew Off Top of His Head
THE FAMILY WAS AWAY FROM HOME
Friends Say Deed Was the Result of Financial Troubles

Arthur Foulke, aged forty, committed suicide at his home in Arcadia, Wednesday afternoon, by shooting himself with a shotgun. The top of his head was blown off and it is evident that he died instantly. No funeral arrangements have been made but it is thought that the services will be held Friday afternoon.

It is not known when the deed was committed but he is believed to have taken his life shortly after one o'clock in the afternoon soon after leaving the garage of Foulke & Long, he being a partner in the firm.

The wife and daughter, Helen, aged twelve, left the home in the car shortly after noon to go to Indianapolis and did not return until late in the evening. They left dinner on the table for Mr. Foulke. William Odle, employed in the Ledger office, was in Arcadia shortly after 5 o'clock on business and was told by some boys that Foulke was lying on the floor of his home. He could find no one about the town who had seen him since about noon. Meeting Dr. E.V. Shockney on the street, Odle, who by this time suspected something was wrong, asked the doctor to accompany him to the Foulke home and they found the body in the screened porch in the rear of the house. Brains were scattered over the floor but the gun was still between the legs of the deceased, indicating that he had held it there when he fired the fatal shot. The load from the gun had also broken glass in the rear door.

It is said that the suicide was the result of financial worries. At least several Arcadia friends of the family say that he had talked to them during recent weeks about his financial condition.

Mr. Foulke has been associated with Elmer Long in a garage and filling station business in Arcadia for several years and he was always held in high esteem by all.

He served three years as treasurer of the Lions Club and was re-elected recently.

The deceased was born on the Foulke homestead five miles west of Cicero, February 8, 1894, being the son of George and Frances (Underwood) Foulke and spent most of his life in that community until his marriage to Miss Inez Everman in May, 1920. A year following their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Foulke moved to Arcadia and have since resided there. He is survived by his mother, who spent the past winter in his home and who is in feeble health; the widow and daughter; a half brother Alvin Foulke, living near Cicero, and three sisters, Grace Robbins, who resides on the home farm where the mother is now living; Mrs. Alice Phillips, near Sheridan, and Mrs. Sarah Ross, residing on the Range Line Road.

It was announced late Thursday afternoon that the funeral will be held at the home at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon and interment will take place in the Sheridan cemetery. The masons will be in charge. Friends may call at the residence to view the body at anytime until the hour of the services. Raymond Shaffer is in charge of the funeral arrangements. He is survived by his mother, who spent the past winter in his home] - [Microfilm Repository: Hamilton East Public Library - Noblesville, Hamilton Co, Indiana]

Extract: MARY FOULKE DIED SUNDAY NEAR ARCADIA/ The Funeral Services Will Be Held Tuesday Afternoon/ Long Resident of Jackson Township - Mrs. Mary Frances Foulke, Widow of George Foulke, passed away at an early hour Sunday morning in the home of her daughter Mrs. Grace Robbins, seven miles east of Arcadia. Mrs. Foulke has been in poor health for several years and her death was not unexpected. The body was taken to the Shaffer funeral home in Arcadia, where it will lie in state until Tuesday afternoon. Funeral services will be held in the Shaffer parlors and burial will take place in the cemetery near Sheridan. Mrs. Foulke was the daughter of Lewis and Sarah (Stratton) Underwood and was born Dec 5, 1853, on the old homestead west of Arcadia where she resided until less than a year ago when the daughter and family moved to east of Arcadia and she went to live with them. The husband has been dead for several years. Just a year ago, June 6th, the tragic death of her son, Arthur Foulke, of Arcadia, was a great shock to her. She leaves besides the daughter at whose home she died, two other daughters, Mrs. Alice Phillips of West of Arcadia, and Mrs. Sarah Ross, residing on road 31, and step-son, Alvin Foulke, west of Cicero. She also leaves several grandchildren

She had frequently threatened to take her life on account of the condition of her health but none of the members of the family took her remarks seriously, and Thursday when she told her sister Grace that she was feeling so badly that she believed she would end it all by committing suicide, but little attention was paid to the remark. Shortly after 8 o'clock all the members of the household except Mr. Foulke went out to the barn to catch some chickens which they intended to sell to the huckster, Friday. Mr. Foulke was almost asleep and the girl chose this opportunity to take her life.

She procured a shot gun belonging to her brother and also his belt which contained several shells. She stepped out of the back door and attempted to place a shell in the gun.

She did not succeed in this. Throwing the shotgun and belt upon the ground she hurried into the house again, obtained the target gun and walked out into the yard again, and pointing the target gun to her right temple, pulled the trigger. The shot attracted the family and they rushed to the girl, who was found lying on the ground in an unconscious condition. She was carried into the house and expired in thirty minutes without regaining consciousness.

Carrie possessed a charming disposition and was a favorite in the neighborhood but her continued ill health caused her to become discouraged with life.

They met at the house at 12 o'clock, Saturday, and short funeral services were held. The interment occurred at Sheridan. [Crown View Cemetery]

POOR HEALTH CAUSES GIRL TO END HER LIFE
-----------------------------------
Miss Carrie Foulke, Daughter of Wealthy Parents, Shoots Herself with Target Rifle.
(Special to the Indianapolis News.)
Noblesville, Ind., November 13.---Miss Carrie Foulke the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Foulke, living near this city, committed suicide last night about 9 o'clock with a target gun. Miss Foulke was an estimable young woman, but had been in very poor health for a number of years, which caused her to be despondent, and yesterday, when she threatened to take her life, her sister paid no attention as the girl had made such threats before without any effort to carry them out. Miss Carrie stepped out into the yard last evening and shortly after the family heard a shot fired. They investigated and found the young woman lying on the ground with a bullet hole through the right temple. She was carried into the house, where she died about fifteen minutes later. A shotgun and belt of cartridges were found on the ground beside the girl, and it is supposed she did not know how to use them, as she shot herself with a target rifle. The Foulke family is wealthy and influential. Two sisters, one brother and the parents survive

PIONEER RESIDENT DEAD
George Foulke Died from Complication of Diseases

   George Foulke, aged 66, a well known farmer of Jackson township, died at his home about two miles east of Bakers Corner, at 11 o'clock Thursday night, of a complication of diseases. It has been known for some time that he was in a precarious condition, but his death comes as a shock to a large number of friends and acquaintances who were unaware of his serious condition.
   Mr. Foulke had spent the greater portion of his life in the neighborhood where he died, and was recognized as a man of sterling integrity, a good business man, and a model farmer. He was born in Ohio, but his father, the late Jesse Foulke, came to this state when it was a wilderness and settled in the vicinity of Bakers Corner nearly sixty years ago.
   He is survived by a wife, three daughters and two sons. The children are Mrs. Oscar Robbins, Mrs. Dr. S. C. Phillips, Mrs. Robert Ross and Alvin and Arthur Foulke
   The funeral took place Monday the services being conducted by Rev. Lindley Reagan. Burial at Crown View Cemetery.

COUSINS ELOPE.
Pretty miss Frank Revis and Her Cousin are Missing.

     Pretty Miss Frank Revis, daughter of D. W. Revis, a well known farmer living four miles west of Cicero, and her first cousin, whose name is also Revis, eloped last Saturday night.  The presumption is that they are married, but nothing has been heard from them since they left. 
   Last fall Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Revis went to their old home in North Carolina to make an extended visit.  Upon their return they were accompanied by two nephews of Mr. Revis, both of whom ere young men o f good address and pleasing manners.  One of them made his home at the Revis residence west of Cicero, and secured employment on the farm of George Foulke near by.  Miss Frank Revis is a winsome young lady, a little more than eighteen years of age, and an attachment sprung up between she and her cousin.  Their friendship ripened into love and the first intimation that any one had of their prospective marriage was from an inquiry made by the young man who desired to know if there was any state in the union that permitted cousins to marry.
     Young Revis, Miss Revis and a relative drove to Cicero last Saturday night to attend a show.  When the south-bound train, due here at 9:30 o'clock, passed through that place the young couple bid adieu to their friends, boarded it and left.  When the father of the young woman was notified of the elopement he was very angry and made an effort to have the Indianapolis police apprehend them.  The only information secured by the capital city authorities concerning them was that a couple answering their description had inquired about the price of tickets to North Carolina.  The officers refused to molest the young people until Revis had issued a warrant for their arrest.  This action necessarily delayed the matter until next day and by that time the irate father had quieted down and accepted the situation philosophically, agreeing to receive the couple with open arms if they had really been successful in their efforts to marry.  It is believed that they are not in North Carolina.

Bob" and living west of Cicero, is rated as one of the best auctioneers in this part of the state.  The pep which he puts into every sale attracts the people and then "Bob" possesses that faculty of getting people to pay good prices for everything that he sells, which makes his services in demand.
     Col. Ross first saw the light of day in Hamilton county and has spent his entire life here.  He was born in Adams township, being a son of John R. and Martha Ross, early settlers of the northwestern part of the county.  He secured most of his education in the old Roderick school house.  He finished the grades and then went to farming and during the forty-one years of his life he has followed auctioneering for eighteen years.  
     Col. Ross has been successful in his line of work, his friends say, largely because of his very friendly disposition and his ability to work.  If necessary he will spend twenty-four hours a day on a job and he will drive through rain and snow storms at any time of the night and any distance to accommodate some one who has befriended him.
     In 1910 Col. Ross was united in marriage to Miss Sarah Foulke, daughter of George Foulke, and they are the parents of three children - Paul, John and Robert.  Fraternally he is a Red Man and a Mason
     For the past eighteen months Col. Ross has been actively connected with the Foland Auction Company but he is now working in that line of business for himself.

POOR HEALTH CAUSES GIRL TO END HER LIFE
-----------------------------------
Miss Carrie Foulke, Daughter of Wealthy Parents, Shoots Herself with Target Rifle.
(Special to the Indianapolis News.)
Noblesville, Ind., November 13.---Miss Carrie Foulke the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Foulke, living near this city, committed suicide last night about 9 o'clock with a target gun. Miss Foulke was an estimable young woman, but had been in very poor health for a number of years, which caused her to be despondent, and yesterday, when she threatened to take her life, her sister paid no attention as the girl had made such threats before without any effort to carry them out. Miss Carrie stepped out into the yard last evening and shortly after the family heard a shot fired. They investigated and found the young woman lying on the ground with a bullet hole through the right temple. She was carried into the house, where she died about fifteen minutes later. A shotgun and belt of cartridges were found on the ground beside the girl, and it is supposed she did not know how to use them, as she shot herself with a target rifle. The Foulke family is wealthy and influential. Two sisters, one brother and the parents survive

Will Make Butter on a Large Scale
     George Foulke, a prosperous farmer of Jackson township, has concluded that there is money in what some people on farms consider insignificant things and is arranging to engage in the butter business on a large scale.  He is milking nine cows now and expects to add to this number in the near future.  He is already shipping from 50 to 60 pounds of butter every week and he hopes to increase the output to 100 pounds weekly.  He has just completed a 60 ton silo and is remodeling his barn.  He is a natural mechanic and has the reputation of being the most up-to-date farmer in his neighborhood.
